Yes of course, sorry I knew it would be obvious once explained :)   The
text mapping and style mappings don't share exactly the same ranges of
text, and hence it can't be a single annotation.



Would you recommend that we move our "sga:AdditionAnnotation", etc., to the

Yes, it depends a little on the scope and semantics of what you have now,
but you could consider:

sga:AddingInformation a oa:Motivation ;
  skos:broader oa:Annotating ;
  skos:prefLabel "Adding Information to an existing Annotation" ;
  skos:inScheme oa:MotivationScheme .
